    Very nice hostel especially for the price. They organize great trips and tours. I rented a scooter and it was very quick and easy. Staff are very friendly. If your expecting a party hostel this isn’t it. Very chill and relaxed , but that’s what I was looking by for so I suited me.

    Hostel is located just on the border of the main part of town so very easy access, beautiful lake view from the terrace and a fantastic, albeit a bit expensive Thai restaurant in the hostel. Rooms were good except no hot water in the private room we stayed in so had to use the common one which had hot water. Can’t comment on social atmosphere as we were 3 people but would definitely come back!

    Without a doubt the cleanest hostel I've ever been in. Less than 10min from the main part of town (but it's a very pleasant walk) and with an exceptional view of part of the lake and hills from the 3rd floor balcony. Rooms are large, and the only bad thing I can say is the atmosphere was just ok. But I think this is because many people only do 1-2 nights in Guatapé (which is a mistake, you'll want at least 3) because of its proximity to Medellín.

    The staff was very nice. Beds in dorms were big and comfort. No hot water at the shower when using strong steam. There is a nice rooftop with sofas and hammocks, and great view of the lake. The hostel located 7 min walk from the center. Small shared kitchen.
